What I have to say...
Mortal, the second installment of Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee’s trilogy, The Books of Mortals, seamlessly transforms you back into the world they have created. Personally I heard Dekker’s voice more than Lee’s in this one, or so I think. I suppose one can never really tell. There were just a lot of parts that seemed very “male,” who knows though, Tosca could just be that good. The thing about the series that is different than The Circle Trilogy, besides the co-author factor is that you don’t go back and forth between two worlds. Nine years from where we left off we are thrown desperately into the themes of love, loyalty, and mortality. Dekker’s novels always contain a very deep “lesson/theme” that I don’t think everyone “gets,” but if you do you REALLY get it. If I explain what I mean more in depth I’ll give the basis of the story away, and you really should read it! I mean, if you don’t close this book without a new, deeper understanding of what love really is, I don’t know what to tell you. The ending is insane; I completely did not see it coming and cannot wait to read the final Sovereign next spring! Dive Deep! ;)
